Vestas receives orders for 75 MW for wind energy projects in China

Vestas has received two new orders from a large Chinese Independent Power Producer (IPP), totalling 75 MW. The first order consists of seven units of the V90-1.8 MW wind turbine and six units of the V90-2.0 MW wind turbine for a project in the Shandong province. The second order is for 25 units of the V80-2.0 MW wind turbine for a project in the Guangdong province.

At the customer’s request, details about the projects’ ownership cannot be disclosed.
The contracts include delivery, installation and commissioning of the wind turbines, a VestasOnline® Business SCADA solution and a two-year service and maintenance agreement.

“We are proud to partner with this progressive IPP, and we are eager to build upon and develop this partnership,” said Lars A. Andersen, President of Vestas China. “Vestas will do our utmost to ensure that this relationship is long-lasting and mutually beneficial. We are excited to continue to share our 30 years of industry experience with this large customer and providing them with our knowledge, expertise and support.”

Vestas has a long history with both provinces and will remain committed to their development and growth. In 1986, Vestas installed China’s first wind turbines in the Shandong province.
